Jochen Bittner schreibt in einem Beitrag für die New York-Times:


"Would the Germany of today help liberate the Germany of 1944? You don’t need to tap Angela Merkel’s phone to find the answer: It’s no." 


 Im Grunde ist sein »Artikel in der NYT nur eine Erweiterung eines »Beitrages aus der Zeit. Einen Leserbrief dazu gab es trotzdem:

Dear Editors

this warmonger, holding a doctorate in jurisprudence, dares to write: “…there appears to be nothing that will get the German government to consider military intervention: n o t e v e n a clear legal basis for action, not even an acknowledged security interest, not even an obvious moral duty.”
The German constitution, called Basic Law, Article 25 (Primacy of international law), reads:

“The general rules of international law shall be an integral part of federal law. They shall take precedence over the laws and directly create rights and duties for the inhabitants of the federal territory.

That means that any military commitment by German forces has to be in accordance with international law, regardless of a real or an alleged security interest, regardless of moral duties - the latter being a contradictio in adiecto in foreign politics, anyway. See, e. g., Oliver Stone/Peter Kuznick "The Untold History of the United States."

Bittner is an inhabitant of the federal territory. If he prefers to become a citizen of a country, where interests trump law, nobody will bar him to do so. Here is one. Dean Acheson, US Secretary of State from 1949 to 1953, speaking to the American Society of International Law:


“No legal issue arises when the United States responds to a challenge to its power, position, and prestige."  


Back in the nineteenth century the German Social Democrats were disparaged as “unpatriotic fellows”. Bittner belongs to the transatlantic derivative of these erstwhile unpatriotic fellows. However, there is a decisive difference: the latter’s labelling fits perfectly. Or, could you imagine an American journalist writing an article like this in, let us say, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, denouncing his country lock, stock and barrel?

Disgusting, this milksop, brown-nosing the current majority of the American classe politique!
